Hidden away in picturesque Cornish countryside on a cliff top over looking the sea the historic hamlet of Trowan is a unique rural retreat. The private gated community of a dozen cottages lies in seclusion at the end of a meandering lane just a mile to the west of St Ives, a select four of the properties have been individually chosen by Only. (the majority of the cottages are second family homes occupied for just a few weeks a year) Surrounded by acres of meadowland with the sea to three sides you may want to do nothing more than simply soak up the view, take the footpath from your door and a twenty minute coastal walk will take you to the beaches, restaurants and bars.
Steeped in history, this very special place has seen a lot of life, home to the mining community followed by dairy farmers and most recently left derelict in disrepair, now fastidiously renovated and restored to its former glory our retreats don’t come any more authentic than this. With a character and charm that changes through the seasons, lush green fields in summer, where children can safely play, bracing headland walks as the evenings start to draw in, breathtaking displays of shooting stars high above in the winter sky, Trowan is an Only of which we are immensely proud.
